Key West - Scallops tonight

Oh the choices...
There's a fish market nearby that we frequent as often as we can. It's located in Half Shell Raw Bar restaurant. They supply fresh seafood to five local restaurants and we periodically take advantage of their market. Tonight we bought their sea scallops, six apiece but we could have been done with only four each, they were huge. Ann cooked them in a casserole using the recipe, "Awesome Baked Sea Scallops/" and they came out great!

We'll take one of each... Well, just the scallops for tonight
We're taking it easy until next week when we'll swing into action (as much action as we ever do down  here) to get ready for the trip north. First, we have to think about all the things we need to do before we actually do anything. This week was the thinking part. Next week is the doing part. We'll enjoy our time in Key West as long as we can.

It's also the time of starting to watching the weather for a good window to head north. The winds are usually out of the east at this latitude so we look for a reversal of the usual winds and that may take several days to materialize. The route to Marathon, our next stop, is due east, we rather not buck a head wind with the accompanying seas. Now it's wait and watch.

I saw sea scallops today in the local Stop&Shop for $18/lb. I'm curious to know what yours cost.

Did you get my review of 7Fish a couple of weeks ago? Did you give it a try?
